Were the 70's really the century of bad taste? Might be. But who prefers good taste to glitter and glam rock, hard rock, shock rock or punk rock made in the USA? Who could not prefer bands like KISS, ABBA, Sex Pistols, Sweet, Alice Cooper or Slade...?
This is the ultimate book about the biggest Swedish pop magazine of the 70's. Everyone who grew up that time will never forget about it. The phenomenon POSTER could not be escaped. Its posters could be seen on any teenage wall, in youth clubs, class rooms, teenage rooms, lounges, community centers... They openend the door to the world of glitter and glam, hardrock and pop.
Hans Hatwig is the founder of the magazine which "papered the walls of a whole generation", as he once said. He also took many of the magazine photos himself. Among those can be found unique pictures of some of the biggest stars of the 70's: ABBA, KISS, Sweet, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, Sex Pistols, Björn Skifs, Ted Gärdestad and many more!
Most of the photos have previously been unpublished. Now, for the very first time, they get to see the light of the day in this wonderful book about POSTER's history.
